Welcome to UTMB Health! Thanks for making a great organization even better!!

High Level Disinfection & Steam Sterilization – Epidemiology Visits!

Please help me welcome Michelle Guigneaux, RN HCE, to our clinics for 2013 visits! Michelle will schedule the visits (as she is able) for your convenience and with avoidance of patient flow interruptions in mind. 

During these visits, Michelle and I want to use your time prudently; if it is helpful for you to email me in advance of the visit, in order to let me know what continues to be confusing on the processes established in 2012, feel free. If I don’t hear from you, then we will use our standard process established to hopefully spot ’things’ missed in 2012 audits, as well as how best to improve our program in 2013. We hope to engage ’all’ staff conducting the procedures for HLD, steam autoclave and Steris using ’Staff Knowledge’ questions.

As always, I enjoy interacting with clinic staff, and look forward to the opportunity to be in our terrific clinics! Thanks in advance! Peggy

The Employee Advisory Council (EAC) has started a new employee outreach program called Engage and Chat. These sessions will take place across the university with the intent to reach out to as many employee groups as possible.

The purpose of Engage and Chat (E and C) is to: introduce employees to the EAC, familiarize employees with the role of the EAC, and advise employees how to become engaged and communicate with the group. 

The first Engage and Chat was held at the Clear Lake Access Center on February 6, 2013.  Thanks to all the participants, the event was a huge success!
